The Falcons are preparing to be without one of their best pass rushers, Adrian Clayborn, for the next couple of weeks.
Clayborn suffered a knee injury in the Falcons' Week 12 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Atlanta is confident that the first-round pick in 2011 will return at some point in the 2016 season.
"We will be without him for a couple of weeks, but the good news is that we will get him back," head coach Dan Quinn said. "We will get him back here soon. We are pumped that he's not out for the year."
Prior to getting injured, Clayborn registered 4.5 sacks, eight tackles for loss and one pass breakup.
